Quasiprobability fluctuation theorem behind the spread of quantum information

  title={Quasiprobability fluctuation theorem behind the spread of quantum information},
  author={Kun Zhang and Jin Wang},
Information spreads in time evolution. For example, the quantum correlation decays when the correlated system locally couples to a third party, such as the environment. This simple but important fact is known as the quantum data-processing inequality. Here we theoretically reveal the quantum fluctuation theorem behind the quantum informational inequality. The fluctuation theorem quantitatively predicts the statistics of such process. To fully capture the quantum nature, the fluctuation theorem…

Quasiprobability Distribution for Heat Fluctuations in the Quantum Regime
The standard approach to deriving fluctuation theorems fails to capture the effect of quantum correlation and coherence in the initial state of the system. Here we overcome this difficulty and derive
Fluctuation Theorem for Arbitrary Quantum Bipartite Systems
We present a fluctuation theorem for quantum bipartite systems in which the subsystems exchange information with each other. Our information fluctuation theorem includes correlations by introducing a
Quantum Fluctuation Theorems beyond Two-Point Measurements.
We derive detailed and integral quantum fluctuation theorems for heat exchange in a quantum correlated bipartite thermal system using the framework of dynamic Bayesian networks. Contrary to the usual
Quantum Fluctuation Theorems, Contextuality, and Work Quasiprobabilities.
A protocol is described that smoothly interpolates between the two-point-measurement work distribution for projective measurements and Allahverdyan's work quasiprobability for weak measurements, and it is shown that the negativity of the latter is a direct signature of contextuality.
Experimental Validation of Fully Quantum Fluctuation Theorems Using Dynamic Bayesian Networks.
Fluctuation theorems are fundamental extensions of the second law of thermodynamics for small systems. Their general validity arbitrarily far from equilibrium makes them invaluable in nonequilibrium
Fluctuation Theorems for a Quantum Channel
We establish the general framework of quantum fluctuation theorems by finding the symmetry between the forward and backward transitions of any given quantum channel. The Petz recovery map is adopted
Extracting quantum work statistics and fluctuation theorems by single-qubit interferometry.
This work shows that the characteristic function of the work distribution for a nonequilibrium quench of a general quantum system can be extracted by Ramsey interferometry of a single probe qubit.
Nonequilibrium fluctuations, fluctuation theorems, and counting statistics in quantum systems
Fluctuation theorems (FTs), which describe some universal properties of nonequilibrium fluctuations, are examined from a quantum perspective and derived by introducing a two-point measurement on the
Quasiprobability behind the out-of-time-ordered correlator
Two topics, evolving rapidly in separate fields, were combined recently: the out-of-time-ordered correlator (OTOC) signals quantum-information scrambling in many-body systems. The Kirkwood-Dirac (KD)
Quantum Fluctuation Theorems
Recent advances in experimental techniques allow one to measure and control systems at the level of single molecules and atoms. Here gaining information about fluctuating thermodynamic quantities is
